In 1959 I worked with a Jewish man who had a serial number on his forearm, he told me that the Nazi's killed his wife and two children,he was able to escape. I visited the Holocoust Museum in D.C. it is a part of history that should be taught in history classes.

The Holocaust, the mass murder of the Romani and disabled, and the slaughter of the estimated 11 million Russian civilians and POWs by the Nazis should be remembered along with all the other instances on the extensive list of mass murders and genocide by organized forces both before and after.

Maybe gun control legislation would be more effective if directed toward governments rather than individuals.

I pray Americans keep this in mind and the country of Israel in these modern times.
